Macrame' Is Back!

It is soooo hot outside and the kids are getting restless. I'm not sure what to do, so I decided to go on Youtube to find some instructional on crochet and also macrame'. My daughter and I have had so much fun trying different techniques. We then went to the library and I checked out a book about macrame'. This craft used to be so popular when I was a kid. It's nice to see it making a comeback among the crafters. Last Saturday I woke up and thought my daughter when be on the computer (her usual ritual) but to my amazement she was working on a macrame' bracelet. It's a miracle!! She is even talking about opening up an Etsy shop once she gets better at it.

Here's the book.
There are also good demos on Youtube. Check it out

I'm envious! I tried and tried to learn macrame the first time it was popular, and just couldn't get the hang of it. I still can't tie a knot worth a darn....
